Objection 2: Further, invincible power is requisite in a judge; wherefore it is written (Eccles. 7:6): "Seek not to be made a judge, unless thou have strength enough to extirpate iniquities."

Whether the Judicial Power Corresponds to Voluntary Poverty?
"Can anyone teach God knowledge, In that He judges those on high?

Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth And makes us wiser than the birds of the heavens?'
